It seems that there is no UI option available for table-charts to limit the number of drop-down values. But within a multibox there exists such option. This means such feature is in general implemented and there might be the possibility to set such restrictions within the easter egg or maybe within the xml-settings of the object. Beside the efforts to check these possibilities both mentioned methods have a significantly risk of failures or side-effects.
